ResetAA Font size: Print

Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Second Department, New York.

The PEOPLE, etc., respondent, v. Michel MOORES, also known as Dorion Jackson, appellant.

Decided: June 4, 2014

REINALDO E. RIVERA, J.P., SANDRA L. SGROI, SYLVIA O. HINDS–RADIX, and JOSEPH J. MALTESE, JJ. Salvatore C. Adamo, New York, N.Y., for appellant. Thomas J. Spota, District Attorney, Riverhead, N.Y. (Michael J. Brennan of counsel), for respondent.

Appeal by the defendant from an order of the County Court, Suffolk County (Weber, J.), dated August 3, 2010, which denied his motion to be resentenced pursuant to CPL 440.46 on his conviction of criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree, which sentence was originally imposed, upon his plea of guilty, on July 20, 2004.

ORDERED that the order is reversed, on the law, and the matter is remitted to the County Court, Suffolk County, for further proceedings pursuant to CPL 440.46.

The County Court erred in denying the defendant's motion to be resentenced pursuant to CPL 440.46 on the ground that his status as a reincarcerated parole violator rendered him ineligible to be resentenced (see People v. Paulin, 17 NY3d 238, 242; People v. Cabrera, 103 AD3d 748; People v. Ashby, 99 AD3d 931; People v. Berry, 89 AD3d 954, 955). Accordingly, the order appealed from must be reversed, and the matter remitted to the County Court, Suffolk County, for further proceedings pursuant to CPL 440.46.
